City Nature Challenge has arrived in Pittsburgh! Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s Urban Bird Conservation Coordinator Matt Webb has been coordinating Pittsburgh’s participation in an international biodiversity challenge using the iNaturalist app. Kicking off April 27, the challenge runs to the end of the day April 30. For both budding and veteran citizen scientists, participation is easy.
Find wildlife in the Pittsburgh region, take a photo noting the location of where exactly you found the specimen and share your observations by uploading your findings through the iNaturalist application on your phone.
Identification of the photographed species will be crowd-sourced through the online community May 1-3 and results will be announced May 4. For more details, visit citynaturechallenge.com.
